To restate the obvious yet again, it is as dependable as the sunrise that critics of the Administration's handling of the terrorism threat never, ever tell us what they would have done differently, nor offer any constructive suggestions about how to improve national security. As I have noted previously, it's a lot easier to be a critic than a playwright.
Not only that, but it appears that the Democrats regard national security as merely another wedge issue that they can use for political gain (see below, Nov. 5 post).
Um ... excuse me, but don't you Dems remember that a little over two years ago some 3000 people died in the most devastating sneak attack ever mounted against our nation, and that we currently have over 110,000 troops in harm's way in Iraq? I agree with Sen. Zell Miller (D-GA) that using secret intelligence information for political gain during wartime is tantamount to treason. Heads should roll, indeed, but don't hold your breath.
